We will initially illustrate DEA by means of a small example. As before, a commonly used method is ratiosjust as in the case considered before of a single output and datw single input. Consider the diagram above with branches A to E included.

For example, for the Dorking branch in one year, there were 44, transactions relating to personal accounts, 20, transactions relating to business accounts and 16 staff were employed. If you are geometrically minded then the slope gradient of this line is 1.

The logic here is to compare the current performance of Reigate the length of the line from the origin to Reigate to the best possible performance that Reigate could reasonably be expected to achieve the length of the line from the origin through Reigate to the efficient frontier.

It is a performance measurement technique which, as we shall see, can be used for evaluating the relative efficiency of decision-making units DMU’s in organisations. Despite this, today DEA is almost exclusively discussed within the context of business. For our bank branch example we have a single input measure, the number of staff, and a single output measure, the number of personal transactions.


For example, for the Dorking branch in one year, there were 44, transactions relating to personal accounts fioetype 16 staff were employed. The technique was first proposed by Charnes, Cooper and Rhodes in and since then it became a valuable tool for estimating production frontiers.

Usually we focus on the ranking of the records rather than anallysis the actual values of the effectiveness scores. You should see the problem we considered above set out as:. For the bank branch example suppose now that we have two output measures number of personal transactions completed and number of business transactions completed and the same single input measure number of staff as before.

Typically we take one of the output measures and filetyype it by one of the input measures. I hope this clarifies the matter a bit filegype not the opposite. Another drawback of this technique is that we have to solve as many linear programming problems as the number of records, something that requires a lot of computational resources. In our simple example we had just one input and two outputs. The answer is again yes.

Consider the diagram below. The diagram below shows the same diagram as before but with these five extra branches A to E envelo;ment as in the above list of ratios. The answer is simple: So how does this work? Learn how and when to remove these template messages. This does NOT automatically mean that Reigate is only approximately one-third as efficient as the best branches.


Does not this mean that we actually calculate differently the ratios for every record?

However we can say that, on the evidence data available, we have no idea of the extent to which their performance can be improved. We do not draw that efficient frontier from Croydon to Dat and from Redhill to F for two reasons:.

If you need convincing of this note that if we rescale the x-axis by a factor of k 1and the y-axis by a factor of k 2then the coordinates of any point x,y change to k 1 x,k 2 y. In microeconomic production theory a firm’s input and output combinations are depicted using a production snalysis. These messages would appear on the operator screens.

The efficiency ratio of a particular record i with x input and y output both feature vectors with positive values is estimated by using the following formula: The efficiency is measured by the ratio between output and input and then compared to the ratio of the other records. The Best point associated with Reigate lies on the efficient frontier.

However, these features may not actually represent inputs and outputs at all, in the standard notion of production.
